I don't know the term for what I want, but:  I'm putting an L-bracket onto a set of bookshelves.  I want to put it on the top shelf, but I don't want that bump you see in the picture, because it'll be inconvenient when putting books on it.  I want it flush with the shelf, which means carving out a space for it in the wood.

What tool would you use?  (And what do I call what I'm trying to do?  Usually I do an Internet search before asking here, but I don't know what to look for?)

TIA

Those look great, Sir! Nice work.

A superior display of minimalism, good Sir.

Nice!

Well, thanks to the AoM crew, who were invaluable about getting this done.  Dennys and Liam told me about mudding the wall to get it smooth again after I took off the chair rail.  I took Muir's suggestion here about putting the L-bracket under the shelves (the drill didn't really fit, but I'd start the whole and straighten it as I pushed it in, and it was better than chiseling into the top of the shelf).  I think there was another hump someone here got me thru.

This thing has been under way for a year.

Endless Forms Most Beautiful

“Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being,…See More
